This weekend, as New Orleans braces for the impending Tropical Storm Barry, The Rolling Stones will push their Sunday night concert 24 hours to Monday night.
Funny enough, NOLA and The Stones have been dancing around one another for the last few months. The band was originally billed to play the city’s fabled Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 2, but when Jagger was required to undergo heart surgery, the show was moved to July 14.
Now, with harsh weather on the way, The Rolling Stones will once again reschedule, with their NOLA return on the books for Monday, July 15 at the 70,000+ capacity Superdome.
According to the National Weather Service, “flooding will be the main concern” with Tropical Storm Barry.
“Widespread impacts to southeastern Louisiana and southern Mississippi is expected, including flooding due to heavy rain and storm surge, strong damaging winds, also a few weak or brief tornadoes,” the agency writes.
